ICF International has released “Lessons in Reentry from Successful Programs and Participants: The Final Report of the Reentry Employment Opportunities Benchmarking Study.” This report summarizes findings from a yearlong study of the U.S. Department of Labor’s Reentry Employment Opportunities (REO) program. The report highlights strategies that successful REO grantees use to help justice-involved youth and formerly incarcerated adults reengage with society and the workforce. The report provides recommendations for increased collaboration with faith-based and community organizations as new REO grant funding is considered.
Population of focus: Formerly incarcerated individuals
